Was in town today with my wife and saw a yard sale. asked about the lantern. Lady said make an offer so I offered her 5 bucks. I think she would have taken a dollar. had gas in it. So I dumped it out. then rinsed it with a little lantern fuel and dumped it again. Cleaned it up a little and put two new mantles in. Oiled the pump and put some more fuel in. Pumped it up and lit it.

Nice find, look on the bottom, what is the date of that 1? I had up to 40 plus, sold off got down to 4 new an 1 used. Have probably 10 stoves. I like collecting Coleman’s.

The battery operated lanterns are so much easier, but it's just not the same. The hiss those old Colemans make remind me of summer nights when I was a kid.

They can't throw as much light as a double mantel Coleman but I did drive away and leave a lantern with 3 AA batteries on this spring and it burned bright for almost 30 hours when I found it again. That's not all bad I say

Sounds like good plan did some that when was kid. I think I have 3 of the Colmen lanterns. Two doubles and a single mantle. Oh I think there is an LP one here to that belong to the boy.
I used to use my oldest double mantel to warm my hands when ice fishing. Before we had the new fangled Mr Heaters.
